Rate reflects ROD membership. Directories show this campground with 2 different names: Bishops Landing and Castaways RV Park and Campground—so it is little confusing for GPS and finding reviews. All the staff were very friendly. Sites are very close together. Some sites have a concrete pad, the area we were in had a gravel area for RV—but we stepped out into mud between the sites. Beautiful views of Lake Conroe. There is access to the lake directly from the resort. They were working on utilities in the area we were camping, so there was a lot of noise, construction equipment and mud, however, improvements cause disruption. Sites were level. There were several large ditches and holes between campsites—which makes it difficult to find a level spot to sit outside. Good Verizon cell coverage and even with trees throughout we were able to easily get our TV satellite connected. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Castaways RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park easy access. Lots of activities. The only thing that I did not like was the people drive thru there like it's a city street. You get a face full of dirt every time they drive by. Everything is covered in dirt by the first day. It would be a great park if they could get the people to stop driving so stupid. We camped at Castaways RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Checked into this place and could not get the RV level. The staff was nice, but the campground conditions were poor. The 50 amp had low voltage. Only stayed one night and left to find a better place. We camped at Castaways RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Terrible interior roads,full of potholes. Connections are a 30amp and 50 amp on same pole for 2 sites. Whoever gets there first gets choice ,next one gets what is left. Difficult if you both need 50 amps. Sites are uneven, out of level and nothing but holes and weeds. They say they are doing improvements but never saw anyone working. On a lake but those sites near lake are reserved for members only. Other shady sites will only fit small trailer or 5th wheel. If you are in a large motor home you will be in unshaded area . No cable, unreliable 2channels of local TV . Wifi for a fee. Nice big pool, pool area needs work,very old. Clubhouse is also very old with outdated furniture. Most of the staff is nice not overly friendly but nice. Don't think we will be back. We camped at Castaways RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This park was a disappointment. The staff was very friendly, but the sites were not level and our "yard" was not good. There is nothing to do in the area. We left earlier than we had planned. We would not return. We camped at Castaways RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

I did not see this in any previous reviews therefore it might be a recent change. This park is now part of the Coast to Coast RV Resorts. Which is basically a time share for RVs. To become a member of a "home park" like this one costs between $3000 to $6000, depending on the park; plus a $200 to $600 annual fee, again depending on the park; plus $79.95 for "classic", or $149.95 for "deluxe", or $189.95 for "gold" membership per year to Coast to Coast. Membership entitles you to stay at your home or other member parks at discount, which in my opinion, given the max length of stay requirements (7 days) the upfront fees and annual fees, you will likely not live long enough to break even. Nowhere is any of this mentioned on the parks website. They do allow non-members to stay at the published rate but you are required to hear the 60 to 90 minute "pitch" as to the benefits of membership.

Some of the interior roads are bad but, the weather has been incredibly bad. The staff was very friendly and there were lots of activities. We stayed here with Resorts of Distinction membership. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Castaways RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

My husband, me, and my two kids came out to fish from the boat. The fishing was excellent. The kids love the water slides. The staff was very friendly. We plan to visit again soon. The park was well maintained and clean. We camped at Castaways RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

The layout of the park is quite confusing - utilities are all over the place and don't make any sense. People plug in all over and the office won't correct it. There was considerable damage done during Hurricane Ike that they are slowly cleaning up - - lots of mud moved down the hills and they lost several trees. Since we stayed under ROD it was $0/night for us - otherwise we wouldn't stay. Lots and Lots of permanent residents and some rigs really look pretty bad.

Sites were not level, with very little grass, if any. They are not well maintained. There were tall trees but rooftop TV did work. The office sent us to site that was occupied. Next best site had tree in front of it across the road making backing 37' Fifth Wheel in difficult. Only stayed as it was free ROD park, we will only stay for 2 or 3 days max. Not a destination park.

The roads were full of potholes and the sites unlevel. Needs a lot of work done, but could be a nice park. They are building Condos next to the park and seem to take more interest in them than the R.V. park. You have to pay for wifi through Tengo and it didn't work most of the time. Some said it worked if you were close to the office. They had a lot of activities. We camped at Castaways RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed our time here. However, this is an older park that has not been kept up as we would have desired. You have to spend quite a bit of time to find a site large enough and level enough to handle your rig. We would stay here again. We camped at Castaways RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a members only park. Since we're not members, we were required to sit in on an hour-long presentations which lasted almost two. We're new to RV'ing, we usually take weekend trips within an hour or so from home. Because my husband's work situation has very recently changed, we may not be able to use out RV much for the next 12-18 months. It is not a good idea for us to buy a membership in the near future, if at all. The first gentleman was very nice, trying to sell us on the time-share and giving us a tour. When the second gentleman approached us, we told him our situation. He asked if we would be purchasing a membership. When we said no, again, he said, VERY RUDELY, " Thanks for coming and you can't come back". There was no reason for him to be rude to us. We had already decided that even if it weren't a members-only park, we would not return. It was a big disappointment from the photos on their website. The "sandy beach area" is non-existent. The gentleman told me that the photo on the website is from "20 years ago" and they plan on getting it back to look like that. We were told they are new owners and they have huge plans on upgrading this park. If they do what they say, it will be a very nice place to stay. The basketball court and the RV sites are in disrepair. The first couple of sites we tried to park at were too high and the bottom of our RV was scraping. There was no way we could park there. The electricity didn't work at the site next to the one where we finally parked. If you plan on staying here, make sure you have a very long sewer hose. We were told that the playground equipment was recently put in. I DO NOT believe that for a second. My daughter & I played on it today and it's in good shape but by no means is it nearly new. When I called to make reservations, I asked if they had wi-fi or cable. They said no. The gentleman today said their wi-fi is down but they have it. The restrooms are clean and recently renovated. There is A/C in the laundry room. The park is very wooded with a pretty view of the lake through the trees. Canoe rentals are $25/half day and $35/full day. We camped at Castaways RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Camp has 2 sections - one shaded, one not. Shaded sites were crammed together, VERY small sites. Roads not maintained or paved. Also the sites were not level. Bathrooms poorly placed and still under construction. Picnic tables there, no fire rings. We did have nice view of lake, and there were lots of trees. Dumpsters not very conveniently located. This will no longer be a public park as of Jan 2007. Memberships for sale. I would not return. We camped at Castaways RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We really enjoyed the quiet this park provides. The park itself needs a lot of TLC and seems to suffer erosion problems from summer rains. We would definitely come back to this park. No free WiFi. The park is in two sections, one without trees and one with a lot of trees. There were 2 dumpsters but as far away from the sites that they could be placed. Bring your leveling blocks, long water hoses and long power cables. The park appeared to be full while we were here. We camped at Castaways RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.
